Chives are native to Europe and are still grown there today. Methods of freeze-drying have been perfected in the commercial production arena. The resulting product is almost equal to fresh chives and they can be substituted in equal amounts when called for in a recipe.

"He who bears chives on his breath, is safe from being kissed to death." - Martial's Epigrams (80 AD)

Chives are the smallest member of the onion family and have a delicate flavor. They can be used as a substitute in any recipe that calls for chopped green onions and will produce a somewhat milder flavor. Try mixing them into soft cream cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese or butter to create a great bread spread. Of course they're always good on potatoes.

"I just wanted to say that I love your spices. I recently ordered and I recieved a free sample of your Barnegat Bay Butcher's Rub. After using this for my chicken, I had to go and order some. It made my chicken mouthwatering! Thank you again, it will be a staple in my spice cupboard."
